Over half a year in development, it’s the WPMU DEV Appointments + Plugin!
Check it out:
So, who is Appointments + for?
Well, anyone who wants to take bookings for appointments, via an easy to use calendar, as part of their business such as:
- Hairdressers – you can specify different services (coloring etc.) and service providers (Jo, Sarah etc.)
- Gyms – Book, and even pay for, different persona trainers and training sessions
- Chiropractors - Choose your favourite chiro and a time that suits the client
- Tuition - Pick a subject, pick a teacher pick a time
- Counsellors – Doesn’t need to be commercial, make an appointment to see a counsellor through a community organisation
- And many, many, many more contexts…
Basically, this plugin allows you to create a complete, fully featured appointments system through any WordPress site… oh, and of course it works with Multisite and BuddyPress too.
Here’s a quick rundown of what the plugin is capable of doing:
- Simply allow customers the option to book their own appointments online
- Schedule appointments with clients yourself
- Enjoy a built-in CRM for managing customer contact information (it’s too easy)
- Collect payments or deposits using PayPal
- Manage your entire team by creating unlimited service providers and unlimited services
- Send confirmation and reminder emails to increase customer attendance rates (seriously useful)
- Allow you and your clients to book appointments up to one year out
- And last, but far from least, manage all appointments right from Google calendar – complete Google calendar sync
Booking an appointment only takes three clicks:
You can use PayPal to collect payments and deposits right out of the box with Appointments +.
You can even integrate it with our WordPress Membership plugin to offer discounts and payment vouchers to existing members of your site.
Setup customizable profiles for each of your team members and Appointments + will automatically display their available time slots:
Clients can click any service your company offers and Appointments + will display all your available team members for that service.
Admins and clients can save any appointment directly to their Google Calendar….with NO API coding required! Just click a button and the appointment shows up on your Google calendar:
PLUS, you get more than 30 more custom appointment features that rival the most sophisticated (and much more expensive!) booking platforms, including:
